HageGeingob inaugurates the new Namibia Ports Authority’s new container terminal

President HageGeingob yesterday inaugurated the new Namibia Ports Authority's new container terminal which was constructed at a cost of N.dollars 4.2 billion.

During his inaugural speech, the Head of State explained that the expansion of the new container terminal puts Namibia on a firm trajectory towards realising its dream of transforming into an international logistics hub.

He said Namibia is linked to neighbouring countries through the various transport corridors and must therefore strive to capitalise on this immense investment by harnessing the vast potential of the Southern African Development Community neighbours that have no immediate access to the ocean.

The new container terminal now gives Namibia the additional capacity to serve both local and regional requirements, he boasted.

The President further highlighted and commended the cruise liner berth and marina breakwater, constructed as part of this project, which he noted strengthens Namibia's capacity to attract tourists to its shores while benefiting from the growing tourism industry.
